Canoe & Kayak Rentals, Hours & Location 

Canoes and kayaks are available to rent weekdays/weekends (see hours below) at the Genesee Waterways Center.

Genesee Valley Boathouse Location
 From the GWC boathouse located in Genesee Valley Park, paddle up the Genesee River toward the Erie Canal or Red Creek “blue trails”. You may see kingfishers swooping across the creek, deer, ducks, turtles basking on a log in the sunlight, and much more!

Lock 32 Whitewater Park Location 
Recreational (flatwater) kayak rentals will be available from the Lock 32 Whitewater Park, in Pittsford.  The Whitewater course is actually below the canal, in the bed of an Erie Canal spillway.  We have docks on the Erie Canal above the spillway, where it is flat, slow-moving water.  From here you can paddle along this scenic part of the Erie Canal toward Brighton/Rochester!
